Facelift for Proton's Impian
20 November 2006

Proton has given its Impian four-door saloon a new look, both inside (dash, dials and, on the GSX only, leather seats) – and out (grille, rear light cluster and alloys).

To harness the Impian’s 110bhp 1.6-litre Campro engine, Proton-owned Lotus has done the dutiful thing and cast its seat of the pants over its suspension, while ABS, EBD (electronic brake distribution) and traction control are fitted as standard.

Prices range from the £10,595 for the GLS manual to £12,195 for the GSX auto, and all models get a three-year/60,000-mile warranty and three years' RAC cover.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
